I volunteered to make my friend Genevieve a baby blanket for the little girl she’s expecting (nicknamed gandersbaby), and she happened upon the perfect pattern! I’ve been searching for a pattern like this for ages, so it was fate! It’s a fun crochet, but Severus complicates things.
Severus is 10 months old and sometimes pretends to be an adult cat, but he’s not. Especially when he catches a glimpse of of the bag he knows I’ve been storing yarn in.
I’m often in the middle of a stitch when Severus leaps across my body and absconds with the skein I need.
But I can’t take it away–he loves it! (Plus, he attacks me when I do)
Once he’s done attacking the yarn, he likes to cuddle with the squares (which will eventually be crocheted together to make the blanket). Multiple times I’ve stayed up later than I intended because I didn’t have the heart to wake him up to put away the work for the night.
Gandersbaby is going to have a lot of cat hair in her blanket… unless Sev decides he doesn’t want to part with it at all. Life’s tough, baby.
